Wastegate rattle Fix

As in Mr. 5 thread http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=176269

I took the car to one of my mechanics and we fixed the rattle.
I have a perma smile now when I drive with the windows down.
The throttle response is also better I can tell.

If you have the rattle while crusing and letting go of the gas pedal, do this fix.
Its awesome.

Are you out of warranty? How long did it take?

I am out of warranty, and even if I was under warranty with all my mods who knows what they would say, I wish i did this a lot earlier.

Takes at least an hour or so cause the engine needs to cool down, and then test drive it to ensure it is gone, we did mine twice cause I still heard it and adjusted it slightly more.

Now its just a very minimal rattle when in idle most likey from the other turbo.
But night and day difference when driving and all you hear is turbos spooling, not pots and pans rattling LOL.

Should not make a difference the software is just a cover up for the problem, this is a mechanical issue, which IMO BMW should tighten this under their service plans at certain intervals.

I just had this done. it was embarassing to be driving such a nice car around with such a glaringly obvious (and loud) mechanical defect, so i got it done as soon as i possibly could as i wasn't sure if it would be causing any further damage. definitely made a difference.

i've heard BMW say that you will still hear a slight rattle at idle and this is a cause of the high pressure fuel system at work, but i don't know if this is legit or just blowing smoke so i don't bring it back again lol.

How easy is this fix? I can just take it to any shops and show them his thread?

Also if you have PROcede and set your wastegate position at 90% and do this fix, would it still work?

Ya give it a shot,

and also I have the procede, I've tried wgp @ 30% and it stil sucked, so it does not matter what percent its at, once it is adjusted it will work at any % after.
mine is now set to 90 or 100 i forget

how much did it cost, from my understanding, you can never fix the wastegate because its very hard to access and very difficult to adjust the rod to tighten it to a certain degree, if you over tighten it, the turbo will blow over time due to the limited pressure flow, also bmw is unable to fix the rattle, i think it might just be a temperately thing

+1. It will come back unless you get the turbos with the upgraded wastegate actuator

Checking around, say at ECS tuning, the replacement actuator is only 32 dollars USD..

what kind of labour does this involve? IE how much to remove the header unit and replace?

wow my original thread,
best thing to do is get new turbo,s with 8 mm actuator, I.m not sure if those can be done separately
call Ivo at columbus auto to find out.

is that what you did? new turbos and actuators?

What'd that run you? I'm sure the actuators are more robust? Are the turbos different in terms of requiring a tune?
